What is Yards for Yeardley?
Started in December 2014 by three young women on the Boston College and University of Virginia lacrosse teams, Yards for Yeardley has become a community awareness and activation event through which individuals across the country have rallied to honor Yeardley and support One Love’s mission to end relationship abuse by educating young people about healthy and unhealthy relationships.
Yards for Yeardley can take many forms–whether it’s running, biking, walking, swimming or even roller blading. You can participate as an individual, as a team or as a community.
Yards for Yeardley is a great way to fundraise for One Love. Whether you’re training for a sport or an upcoming race, or want to host an official event with your community, you can join others from across the country to raise awareness and support One Love.
